Comments about Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream:

My hair is pin straight and uncooperative with curls. So when I decided I wanted a curly, vintage look for Halloween I knew I was going to need some help. Kinky Moves worked great as a curl enhancer for me. I started with damp hair and then rubbed a healthy dab through my hair starting about mid shaft and combing down. Afterwards I sectioned it off and set it in foam rollers for the night using just a touch of light weight spray gel at the ends to keep them in place. I've tried this before with just okay results without the curl enhancer.

The next morning after about 10 hours of setting there were a few tiny places where my hair was just a little bit damp (I have a TON of hair, curling it can be a trial) so I gave it a shot with the blowdryer and let it cool for a few minutes. As soon as I started unwrapping my curls, I knew that Kinky Moves had been the missing ingredient. I had great, big bouncy curls. All I had to do was run my fingers through them a bit to break them up so I wouldn't look like Shirley Temple, and pin back a few sections and it looked amazing.

This stuff isn't just for folks with curly hair. If you have straight, stubborn hair, this setting lotion will do the trick!

      I use this when I want extra curl in my naturally wavy hair. I use it right after I wash my hair, and either air dry or blow dry with a diffuser attachment.

      Comments about Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream:

      Wanted to try something new and was always told by stylists that curl cream leaves your hair softer and with more movement without frizz and having a helmet on your head like mousse does. In my case none of that was true, my hair which is curly was super stiff as if I put a bottle if hairspray in it. The product smells delicious but I'd rather have movement of some sort to it. Plus the bottle is little and the directions say to saturate your hair. I only used about a half dollar worth so could only imagine if I saturated my hair as it said. My hair is mid back and the amount I used was plenty. For the price I paid on sale it was worth a try but will continue to search for a alternative.

      Terrible drying curl cream

        Comments about Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream:

        I gave this product several tries so I could give a real review. I've tried several other curl creams from Curly Sexy Hair, Kenra Professional curl cream, and and lower end Marc Anthony curl cream.

        Not Your Mother's curl cream is the worst of them all. I have pretty curly hair, and it weighed them down so much they almost looked wavy. This was after applying different amounts to make sure I wasn't just overloading my hair. Same Result.

        It smells like crushed Flinstone vitamins and not in a good way.

        After just a few days of using it my hair is so DRY. It also takes several washes to just get it OUT of my hair.

        It doesn't define curls, but gives this sticky hold that makes your hair feel dirty and totally unmanageable.

        So disappointed, and will be going back to any of the other 3 I mentioned that don't have such horrible results.

        This product works great for my hair. I just got it the other day and I'm in love! It controls my frizz and it definitely controls my wavy/frizzy hair. However the one thing I don't really like about it is the smell. But you need to let your dry in order for the smell to go away. At first it will have a strong smell but once it dries, it's like the smell wasn't there in the first place. Bottom line I recommend it! It's great.

        Comments about Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream:

        So good! It's better for thinner curls and wavy hair because it give a lot of volume. It's not greasy and it lasts on my hair for like 6 days! Then I wash. All you need is a little bit too. The smell isn't the best but who cares. However this gives hair that more volumous dry curl look without the frizz and I like that. I hate greasy curls. This also makes your hair have a nice tint of shine. Not overly shiny

        Bought this product along w the beach spray on promo - the first day I used it I loved it, it instantly made my naturally wavy hair look as if I had spent time curling w a wand- big loose perfect Beachy curls. I noticed the grape smell but it didnt bother me. I have used this product a few times since that first experience, and while it does still work very well, the grape odor is much more noticeable and unpleasant. I have reached for it, remembered the smell and opted not to use it. Too bad. Otherwise good product and great value.

        Comments about Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream:

        Okay, reading through some of these reviews, I think it's very important to realize, before buying this product, that is called "curl defining cream". Therefore, it is meant to enhance naturally curly hair. This product will probably not work on wavy or straight hair, but will on very curly hair.

        When using: make sure to dampen to your hair so that the product will dry WITH your hair, it will feel crunchy about halfway through the drying process, just wait until it fully dries. (It takes about an hour for me, but also my hair takes about 3-4 hours to fully dry after being washed)

        The product does feel heavy before fully drying, so, again, just wait until it fully dries. When it does dry, there is a bit of an odd feeling to it, not exactly "dirty" or like product residue, but a little dried out.
